  1. Thats the plan,as hard as it is right enough,they are beatable in this it seems..
  2. OTHER NEWS Celtic win the league cup with a 1-0 win over Rangers..Ajer getting the goal in the 3rd minute.
  3. SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER/NOVEMBER Well what a few months that was as you can see below, Overall the first quarter of the season has been not bad in all fairness. I knew it would be a struggle in the league trying to dislodge Celtic and Rangers but we have more than held our own and came away with some good results - especially the Celtic win at home and the good win over Killie which saw Brophy score against his former employers We got knocked out of the cup against Rangers,but not bothered too be honest,as it was causing rotation problems for league matches and wasnt a major concern anyway the league cup.We have shuffled things about a touch though slightly moving the no.10 role up beside Brophy where it has worked well it seems I have mostly used the tactic shown earlier during the save,so far so good. Currently 5pts behind Rangers who along with Celtic have a game in hand,giving them a gentle reminder that we are still here,Mckenna and Simpson have been rock solid at the back with some superb displays in the last few games..
  4. Thanks for the kind words first of all,Motherwell have some cracking players especially Campbell who looks a great player!! Yeh Cosgrove had a great offer to join Norwich which was just too good to turn down and knew Brophy was a good replacement,will keep that in mind about the boy Wright,dont really know too much about him in all fairness.Big update to come soon guys
  5. YACS is a decent skin to use for laptops,i use one myself - Pretty sure its in the skinning section somewhere..
  6. JULY/AUGUST The Europa League campaign started in earnest and we dispatched the team from San Marion 6-0 on aggregate,although should have been more,they were persistently fouling and this resulted in the game being stopped,the result setting us up against the the Slovenians Olimpija Ljubljana,a good win at home against them even though a late goal which resultedly would cause us problems in the return leg as you can see,a defeat over there with a late sucker punch goal in the 91st minute sent us spinning out the tournament already,Aberdeen just doing what they usually do eh!! League duty started and what a start it was 6-0 up at half time away to Livvi,in a quite remarkable game which finished 10-0!! - a late goal consigned us to defeat against Motherwell.We picked ourselves up with a bit of rotation in the League Cup against Hibs.Champions Celtic were next and we held them to the 76th minute until a collapse which saw three goals conceded in seven minutes - what was happening..Dusted oureselves down again for the game against Hearts at Pittodrie where goals from Brophy and Ferguson gave us a good win Sitting in 3rd place at present and making steady progress,after another two games played against Hamilton where we won 1-0,and against St Mirren with a 2-1 victory..
  7. KEY PLAYERS FOR THIS SEASON The jewel in the crown of the side,with a host of top sides waiting to come in with a bid,the centre mid is contracted until 2024 and we are in no rush to sell Another highly rated prospect,solid at the back and has chipped in with a few goals already Keeper has been solid so far,great aerial attributes and is a good keeper overall i feel.. Pulls the strings in the middle of the park next to Ferguson,great vision and passing range make him a threat in midfield
  8. Meet the squad - Season 19/20 Below is the 25 man squad that I will be using for the season. The transfer window has shut now for the summer but I will hopefully be able to get rid of the few of them in January,u may see a few unusual names in here,these are the players that we brought in,on the transfer market period Quite happy overall with the players that we have at our disposal,and we have cover if needed,dont want to rely too much on loanees,so really keep these at a minimum where possible so we are not too reliant on them,I'll post a few of my key men below. If anybody wants any screenshots of any particular players please let me know.
  9. Now with the ins: Hasselbaink comes into the side on a free transfer,can play in the no.10 role as well as up front,looks better in the no.10 role though Season loan from Bournemouth,looks a good defender and slots in nicely beside Mckenna in the heart of defence The replacement for Cosgrove as we said earlier departed for Norwich,a 2M signing from Kilmarnock and we hope he hits the ground running Will give competition for Greg Leigh at left back,picked him up for 300k from QPR,good pacy player. Gave Will Keane a trial and he impressed in the game that he played in for the reserves,bit of a gamble with him really as hes struggled everwhere hes went it seems On loan for a season from Bolton,looks a great talent and will give Hasselbaink a challenge for a place in the team I will post the squad next and my key players etc..
  10. Summer Transfers - Season 19/20 I will introduce my new signings and then give you a look at the team soon. We had a small transfer budget of about 400k and wage budget gave us about 7k to play with there or thereabouts,so i knew we would have to juggle things about a little to get players in and some of the dead wood out.The transfer window has closed as the game has progressed so this are my final dealings for the summer window. Starting with the outs: Kilmarnock were after Connor Mclennan,dont see him as good player so we let him go with a sell on fee included,the big one was Sam Cosgrove in a 4.4M move to premiership side Norwich,he made it abundantly clear that he wanted to play in a top division so we reluctantly let him go with our best wishes. This would give us some cash now to bulid things the way we want it,we got 3.6M of the money,so thats good enough.The other players Dangana,Wright and Jackson have no future at the club and have been sent out on loans.
  11. The Tactics Throughout this season, I will be using one of the below tactics. These are tactics that I haven't tried out on FM before- I have recently been away and spent the majority of the time bored creating tactics on a notepad so I am hoping they can come good. I have never been too good at FM though so we will see. Im looking for a bit of mix n match with this,against the bigger teams away from home most probably Celtic and Rangers,i'll probably drop the SS into a more defensive mid role to protect the defence,whether it works or not is another matter , Im looking to control the play with the inside forwards cutting inside getting shots in,for some reason ive always had a bit of luck down the right hand side when playing FM so differing it from the left is another viable option that i'll give a go.lets see how it works.
  12. PRE-SEASON We played a variety of local clubs to get match sharpness up and get used to the tactical side of things in general,in waht really was nothing more than training exercises in general.A total of 21 goals scored in the 4 matches played which is good.We cancelled one of the original friendlies as it was too close to our Europa match. Hopefully we can do this when it matters now..
  13. PRE-SEASON Most of the pre-season will be against lower sides from near Aberdeen to get full fitness and match sharpness before the Europa League 1st qualifying round match in the 2nd week of July,so not much time to get things sorted!! My first job is to reshape the whole backroom team in and try get some legends in the door possibly to help out We have five pre season matches against local sides before we start the Europa league campaign
